We conducted interviews to find out exactly what our audience thought of our OTS. Watch below to see what they thought.
As part of our evaluation, it was necessary to get some good, reliable feedback in order to see what was liked about our project and what we could have improved on. As you can see we managed get a good set of results back. We spoke to people willing to do this interview that were also keen on watching new horror products which we knew would be good because they would have a brief idea about what they were talking about. The results and information that we got back from all of our participants meant that next time we can use this solid set of information to either continue with the sort of work we were doing and/or make improvements based on what they said.

- What did you think about the sound?

We also decided this was the best age rating because it would mean we wouldn't exclude the younger ages, that being if they like watching horror films. We also enjoyed hearing our audience feedback because it meant that getting a variety of people,with all having their own different opinions, how the rest of the world would react whilst watching our film.

We used an attractive male to play the part of the killer. This would make the male audience aspire to be like him and females audience enjoy watching him.
We were targeting a classic horror audience as identified via our research that would enjoy recognising classic horror conventions such as:
